Dathun A meditation training intensive with Dr. Reggie Ray December 16, 2006–January 14, 2007 Crestone, Colorado DR. REGGIE RAY ... isoneofthemost innovative and experienced meditation teachers currently teaching in the West, drawing on 38 years of study within the Tibetan tradition and many years of solitary and group retreat practice. He teaches within the dharma and meditation lineages of the great siddha Chögyam Trungpa, Rinpoche. On the faculty of Naropa University since its beginning, he is the author of Indestructible Truth, Secret of the Vajra World, Buddhists Saints in India, In the Presence of Masters, and other books. Dathun is a challenging, structured training in the practice of meditation. Participants will receive extensive instruction in mindfulness-awareness (shamatha-vispashyana), as well as opening, stabilizing and extending awareness according to the Tibetan Buddhist teachings (mahamudra). Please note: This 30 day meditation intensive can also be attended in weeklong segments. DATHUN HIGHLIGHTS INCLUDE: • Daily dharma talks on the essential teachings of the practicing lineage • Regular mentoring with an individual meditation instructor • Intensive periods of silence interspersed with discussion and group exploration • The opportunity to experience and work through difficult emotional states that emerge during meditation in a safe, accepting environment • Vibrant and mutually supportive community life • Meals according to the Japanese Zen style (oryoki) • Extensive exploration of the body and breath as the ground and entry gate to the profundity of the meditative state Originally designed by Chögyam Trungpa, Rinpoche as a way to introduce Westerners to the awakened state through intensive practice, Dathun is a unique, life-changing opportunity to meet the depth and space of your own being. “I have attended four Dathuns with Reggie Ray, and each one has been an invitation to leap anew into the further unknown. For me, the intensive periods of sitting meditation combined with oryoki meals, long stretches of silence, and awkward social interactions all add up to feeling cornered and unmasked. With no place to hide, the result? A deep letting-go, an increased sense of wholeness and tenderness, and an unshakeable gratitude to Reggie Ray and the practicing lineage for illuminating the next steps into boundlessness.” — Tami Simon, Publisher, Sounds True Limited to 100 participants.
